West Branch Camps

West Branch Pond Camps is a traditional Maine Sporting Camp, family owned and managed since 1910. We are located ten miles east of Kokadjo, Drivers follow the dirt Frenchtown Rd. right to us. Our remote wilderness location gives you a disconnect from the rush and roar of modern life. The pace and space offer a new perspective.

We offer rental cabins in the American Plan tradition. The cabin is furnished with linens and a boat. Each cabin offers full beds and includes a bathroom in summer and outhouse in winter. Summer guests receive three home cooked meals a day.  Winter guests receive Breakfast and Dinner in the lodge and a bag lunch for their travels.

If you mean to recreate and/or burn some calories, there are plenty of things to do. The Appalachian Trail follows the ridge line of Whitecap Mountain. The base of the trail system is a short drive from the camps. The summit is a 3 1/2 mile hike. Moose abound around the shore of the pond and along nearby logging roads. A short ride in the car or a paddle in a canoe will put you in contact with these denizens of the north. Native brook trout thrive in the cool water of the pond and local streams. Fishing is done with flyrod only.  Although the trout are not large, averaging eight to twelve inches, they are a feisty catch and delicious when pan-fried. Each spring brings a returning flight of songbirds, ducks, osprey, and of course the resident pair of loons. Bird watching opportunities are excellent in the early morning along the wooded paths later used for cross-country skiing.
